Computational Fluid Dynamic Simulations Of Airflow And Covid-19 Particle Studies In Operating Rooms, 2022

 Item
Abstract Operating rooms (ORs) have a higher pressure compared to its surroundings to prevent air entering the OR. In addition, ORs are designed to have a laminar airflow (LAF) system to prevent the spread of contaminants that may arise from either hospital personnel or the patient. However, a door-opening results in the rapid depressurization of the OR and disrupts the airflow which may cause an undesirable spread of airborne contaminants. The onset of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by...
